For those not familiar how we work here in the sandpit, we have five and a half working days. Yes, 5.5 days. That’s not all. We start our work week on a Saturday when the rest of the world is just enjoying their weekend. Some companies have 5 working days, some have 6 working days … we have 5.5. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing because you go to work in the morning and leave by 3 pm (only 3 more hours before your normal shift ends). Most of the time, we end up leaving way past 3 pm!
Anyhow, we had a semi-long weekend a couple of days back due to Islamic Holiday (Isra Wal Miraj or ascension of the Prophet). I say semi long because some companies has 3 long days off while I had 2.5 days.
I had planned on doing a lot of housekeeping and organizing during this time. Also, I wanted to check shops for sale items since Dubai Summer Surprises started. Here’s the plan:
- Organize wardrobe – throw unwearable items / donate old stuff / try on pre-pregnancy clothes (and hope they fit!! … of course that’s wishful thinking)
- Organize our Medical File – our files are all over the place. I want to have a proper file thingie.
- Purge and Clean – discard whatever — papers, old unused stuff …
- Delete Files on PC – files that are really not worth keeping… I swear I have a lot of them!
